Mallika Chopra explains why all women should feel concern about the environmental toxins present in their homes.
It’s important for women to know about the toxins in their home and all the things in our environment, which are affecting us. For me particularly, since I have become a mother, I am much more sensitive about the things I am using in my house to clean, the detergents I am using, and the food that I am feeding my children.
So for me particularly, it started in that journey to motherhood, but I think as we are seeing more and more women being affected by certain diseases both from our food and our environment and our technology, as well as the decision makers in terms of what’s happening in our homes both in terms of cleaning and food, I think we have to take responsibility to educate ourselves about what we are putting in our bodies and on our bodies and in our environment.
So it’s actually been something that I personally am starting to research more. The Internet is a great tool to find information and different products that maybe we need to think about switching, likewise with food and the food that we are feeding our children, because it’s a big, big issue in terms of obesity, disease etc.
